A second youth division, classified as “Juniors” will be run as its own race at the finals for those NOT entered in the open. The requirement for entering as a Junior is to purchase a membership, no qualifiers needed.
See the Finals tab for more information on entering these classes.
Barrel racers at WCBRA prime sanctioned races will pay a $5.00 fee at each WCBRA race they attend per horse (both members and non members). Entering a minimum of 10 races is mandatory to compete at the Finals Race to be held Labor Day weekend. The $5.00 finals fees paid at each race ensure WCBRA points toward the year-end standings.The $5.00 finals fee is YOURS. YOU HAVE A CHANCE TO GET IT BACK! Each finals fee will go directly into the added money for the finals race. WCBRA will guarantee a 3-day race with a minimum of $5,000 added money each day. The fees you pay as a barrel racer throughout the year now, guarantee a way to run at a fantastic finals barrel race! WCBRA will also be tracking money won (converts to points) and attendance for members throughout the year. There will be year-end awards at the end of the year based on money won and attendance
To receive a time at a WCBRA race YOU MUST MAKE A COMPETITVE RUN! This means, if you miss your run or turn out, you will not receive an attendance or points.
Knocked over barrels will result in a no time, unless otherwise specified by producer. Checks will not be awarded for knocked over barrels.
You may only enter a horse once in the Open class. Two people may not share a horse in the same Open class. This includes any carryovers into the Open. Only under WCBRA official approved circumstances will this be allowed.
WCBRA Producers cannot take more than 30% of the entry fee, and this is considered after STATED fees. It is suggested that the only additional fee accessed the barrel racer is the $5.00 finals fee. Other fees (timer’s, points, etc., etc.) are ultimately up to the individual producer, but in an effort to eliminate the mass amounts of additional fees, please keep the add-ons to a minimum.
WCBRA paid places and payout is determined by the total number of riders, fees and added money. Last hole in the 4D/5D is required to pay a minimum of the entry fee paid to enter (less the $5 WCBRA finals fee).
Each WCBRA race attended (with paid $5.00 finals fee) counts as 50 points. Money won converts to additional straight points ($50.00 = 50 points). Points will be audited by a third party bi-monthly. Please note that year-end awards points will not be counted until a membership has been completed, received and approved.
Members who have a single horse on their membership are eligible for 1 year end award (1 horse equals 1 award, 2 horses equals 2 awards). Members will only receive credit for the number of horses membered in each race. Example; on a single membership, even if you run MULTIPLE horses, you will get credit for ONE horse in the race. You cannot run two horses on a single membership and count them both.
Points will be regularly updated on the website. Riders must email any point discrepancies or question to email@example.com. Points will be audited by a third party and are subject to change. Management reserves the right to make point adjustments as they see fit and fair.
Year-end points as presented at The Richest Race In The West will be final.
NSF checks will result in up to a $50 fine and the member being put on an ineligible list. No points will be awarded until the check has cleared and the bank fees paid.
